Gusher Re-enactment The Lucas Gusher gave up its riches for nine days before Anthony Lucas and the Hamill brothers could get the well under control. We re-create the gusher using water and only run it for about 2 minutes. But it is always fun to watch how high the water will blow and what direction the spray will take. It is always free to enjoy the gusher re-enactment. Regular admission fees apply to museum entrance. Upcoming Dates & Times: TIMES ARE APPROXIMATE AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE. WEATHER AND OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES MIGHT CAUSE CANCELLATIONS. CALL TO CONFIRM.
